Many drivers hadn’t quite gotten all the off-road racing in that they wanted by the time the Mapston race was over, so we headed down to the PRRC track in Potlatch for the final race of their inaugural season. Among them, our club photographer, Nathan. Life unfortunately got in his way, delaying the photos until today, but they are here now.
Well folks, the air is getting chilly and the track is getting rough. Just in time, too, because our season finale, the Mapston Memorial, is in the books. As points for this particular race aren’t counted, many club members chose to bring out rigs they don’t normally compete with. Several out-of towners showed up too, trying to get their last bits of racing in before snow closes the outdoor tracks. photos of the Mapston race are available here. As usual, thanks to Nathan for his time taking them. Additionally, if your offroad itch isn’t quite scratched for the year, the Palouse River RC club is hosting their last race this coming weekend down in Potlatch.
The final points race of the season is in the books, but don’t hang your transmitters up just yet! The annual Dave Mapston Memorial race is tomorrow, 10/14 at noon! Photos for the last race are available here and as always thanks to Nathan for taking them.
Another club race is in the books. This was the second to last race for the points series and the third to last official club race of the season. That’s right, folks; only two more races left for the year. Photos, including some from the 4WD SC class —a season first— are available here. As always, thanks to Nathan for taking them.
Despite a relatively light turnout due to the holiday weekend, our last club race was anything but uneventful. Between quals and mains, the club hosted a "Dash for Cash" timed race in which all cars were welcome and the course was driven backwards. Photos of that particular event are, unfortunately, unavailable as our photographer, Nathan, was participating. We do, however have video of it, courtesy of Isaiah Furrows. Photos are up here and can be viewed at your leisure.
Our neighbors to the south recently hosted one of their first club races. Palouse River RC is a new and growing club based in Potlatch, ID, and they're starting out right. Several RCCCS members took the trip down to show their support (and get some racing in, of course.) Photos can be found here.
Members of RCCCS often "support the sport" and will travel to events held by nearby clubs. The weekend of Aug. 4th-5th was no different. Several racers traveled over to Libby, MT, where the Kootenai RC Racers (KRCR) held their sixth annual Hot August Showdown. Pictures of the event can be found here, (Courtesy of Nathan Goulding) as well as over on the KRCR facebook page.
